The 2023 Performance Evaluation and Planning process begins on December 4th, 2023, when self-evaluations are assigned in UNMJobs. All evaluations are due by March 29th, 2024.
Due to COVID-19 and limited operations in 2023 we encourage you to review your 2023 goals and make changes as needed prior to starting your PEP process. Goals can be modified at any time.
Staff performance evaluations are an important part of employment at The University of New Mexico. The process is not just about completing a form, it’s about managers and employees making the most of an opportunity to engage in high quality discussions about performance, development, and goals.
Although performance evaluations are encouraged to be more than just a once-a-year process, Human Resources must ensure that staff performance evaluations are completed annually and at the end of a new employee's probationary period. See UAP 3230: Performance Review and Recognition.

Manager Evaluates Employee

The Manager will be notified via an automated email when one of their direct reports completes their Self-Evaluation.
Upon the Manager being notified (via an automated email) that one of their direct reports has completed their Self-Evaluation, the Manager must evaluate the Employee.
The Manager will simultaneously review the Employee’s Self-Evaluation and enter their own ratings regarding the Employee’s job responsibilities and achievement of goals. The Manager must also review the goals set for the year ahead and comment on them as necessary.
We recommend this step begins January-February, but it may be completed sooner if the Self-Evaluation is completed by the Employee.
